What are the main features of a tiled conservatory roof?
With a tiled roof, the conservatory can hold a more “homely” appeal and looks more like an extension to the house, blending in with the overall look and styling of the property. Roof tiles also come in a number of colour options enabling you to pick one that goes well with the rest of the house.
Tiled roofs can go with any of the various conservatory designs in existence. What’s more, you don’t have to stick with traditional concrete or slate tiles because there are now many products made with materials that are a lot lighter and durable.
Tiled roofs are very effective in blocking external and extraneous noises potential providing your conservatory a more peaceful environment to help you enjoy your room even more.
Solid roofing adds an extra layer of thermal insulation which contributes a lot to the ability to use the room comfortably even in times of excessively hot or cold weather – a complaint many conservatory owners with polycarbonate roofing make is that their conservatory becomes unusable during these times. In effect, they retain heat when it’s cold outside and deflect heat when it’s warm outside.
What are the main benefits of a tiled conservatory roof?
Lower energy bills
With the solid covering and insulated underside, a tiled conservatory roof enables you to save on heating (and cooling) costs. Hot air rises and with a something like a poly-carbonate or poor quality glass roof, this heat would just radiate out of the room via the roof.
Because a solid roof is a much better insulator, this heat does not escape. Therefore, the amount of time that you need to physically heat the room can be reduced and so money that might otherwise be spent on heating can be saved.
Increased functionality and use of the extra space
A tiled roof allows you to use to your conservatory at any time of the year, no matter the weather outside. The single biggest complaint owners make about a conservatory is that it gets too hot or too cold to use. Solid tiled roofing helps maintain a more stable comfortable temperature than would have been possible with poly-carbonate or low grade glazed roofs.
Whether you want to use the extra space for a study, lounge dining or work area, this is now possible all year round with the increased protection from outside weather extremities and noise that this roof type provides.
Weather events, such as rain can, produce unnecessary noise that annoys many people and can be distracting if you are trying to just quietly enjoy your room. This roof type blocks out noise thus allowing you to focus on the task at hand or chill out.
